Welcome to the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program at Henry Ford.
Our Mission is to train child and adolescent psychiatrists who will be leaders in behavioral health care and value giving back to society and the community at large. We will train culturally sensitive, ethical and open-minded fellows to evaluate children and adolescents with a developmental and biopsychosocial approach that is focused on patient-family centered care and well-being.
This fellowship program focuses on training child and adolescent psychiatrists to critically evaluate patients with a developmental approach and overall understanding of the interplay of psychosocial stressors and family dynamics. We value training that supports critically evaluating new and established approaches to the treatment of psychiatric disorders, contributions to research and educating and teaching trainees and colleagues.
Our fellowship program reflects the institution’s culture of diversity, innovation, inclusiveness, and collegiality. This is achieved through the clinical care of children, adolescents, and their families in diverse settings during the training period along with supportive mentorship and supervision that encourages personal growth, critical thinking, scholarly activities, and physician wellness. We welcome child and adolescent psychiatry fellows who value the importance of patient and family centered care, a diverse patient population and the pursuit of lifelong learning and personal growth.
